Default OK to make suggestions to transferring dealer?

A dealer sent a handgun transfer to me. The same day it arrived I had to sign for an ammo delivery. But this transfer came USPS without signature required so they just left it on my doorstep. And the handgun was just thrown in the box with a handful of packing peanuts which left little foam bits in the gun. And the dealer didn't send a CFLC number which was later corrected after I requested it. So my question is, should/can I ask this dealer to take more care when shipping firearms? I dont want to tell him how to run his business but i see it as a safety issue and it would benefit all dealers he works with including possibly me again in the future.

You can do whatever you want. If you feel like telling him, tell him. He might tell you to piss off and then actually realize he was wrong. He probably isn't going to regularly send guns to you so it won't hurt.

If that gun had been lost, it wouldn't have been my problem. I would just let the customer know what the sender thought of his precious package.

Well, my view is that if the FFL is so stupid as to do all of that, what is the chance that he will listen to you and learn from it?

Often people get annoyed when you tell them, especially if they realize that they were wrong.

When I send my FFL, it includes a note that the CFLC letter is required, but the funny thing is that while my phone number is also included, I have received email asking for my phone number.

I used to tell FFLs issues with shipping, but I have since given up. It is like trying to teach a horse to sing, it is a waste of time and annoys the horse.
